My knee was spasming out when I went to bed last night, and it really hurt. I had a hard time falling asleep. As a consequence, I overslept this morning, and got myself together too late to go to the Route 66 museum in Pontiac.

So I decided to take old Route 66 to the next town NE of here, Atlanta, IL. There was a restaurant there done up in old '50s style that I had been to before. While I was driving there, I remembered that there was a grain elevator museum that I've always wanted to check out. So I drove around Atlanta looking for it. I drove right past it because I was looking for a modern grain elevator, and this one was wooden and painted red. It had a self-guided tour that explained how the grain elevator worked.




Then a decided to take a picture of the tiny Carnegie (I think) library. While I was there, I realized that I was close to the restaurant, but there was a museum next to the restaurant. I decided to go in. It had an arcade museum with old video games--Space Invaders! Pac-man! I took some pictures there, and then checked out the rest of the museum, and took lots of pictures.



Then I went to the restaurant. I had a large (1/3 pound!) frisco melt with homemade potato chips, and blackberry pie a la mode for dessert. I'm stuffed. Burp.



I had a great time, and I have lots to write about for the blog.

Mom Report

Mom's pain came back, although this time it's near her knee. She's going to see the pain doctor next week. I hope that he can help. She hasn't been sleeping well because of it.

Mom is stressing because her trip to Europe is coming up, and she's not sure if she should go or not. Also, my uncle has had more fluid around his heart, although the doctor is just watching it right now.

She's been talking about her stress to more people, which is good because she needs a chance to vent.

She's interested in the places that I've been visiting or plan to visit. She wants to take a road trip!

She's concerned about Harlee, as am I. The vet tried to reach me today, but I missed the call. The vet said that she had some ideas of things to do for Harlee. I hope that I'll catch her on Monday and see what they are.
